A professor of De La Salle University was impressed by how the current administration is spending its money.
On a social media post, Professor Van Ybiernas shared an article from the Inquirer about the 3-B pesos worth of new equipment for the Philippine National Police (PNP) and praised the Duterte government for showing that the country has a budget for improvements.
During the past administrations, Yviernas already thought that the Philippines will always be a beggar because of being lack of budget.
“Ewan ko sa inyo, pero ako nagugulat sa laki ng perang nilalabas ng gobyerno sa ilalim ni Duterte,” Yviernas said.
“Kung maniniwala ka sa mga naunang administrasyon, iisipin mong pulubi ang gobyerno natin e,” he added.
Ybiernas suspected that there might be a reason why the past administrations are seems trying to hide the true wealth of the government.
“Pero gastos ng gastos para sa pangangailangan ng bansa ang kasalukuyang gobyerno. Saan galing ang pera?” he said.
“Sagot: MAY PERA TALAGA ANG GOBYERNO, mukhang hindi lang ginagamit para sa sambayanan dati,” he added.
Because of the performance of the government, the historian said that he’s not having a bad time in paying his taxes because he knew where his money went.
“Kaya naman parang nakakabawas ng sama ng loob ang pagbabayad ng buwis sa pamahalaan (uy, nagbabayad ako ng buwis; hanggang last year, income tax pero simula noon pa man hanggang ngayon, kung ano-anong buwis basta’t nagpapalabas ka ng pera sa loob ng bansa) kasi at least nakikita mo kung saan napupunta yung buwis mo,” he said.
On Monday, PNP presented the new types of equipment at Camp Crame to the public.
Some of the equipments showed are helicopters, vehicles and EOD robots.
